    My Elefant has the stock handgaurds. I was going to keep'em, because they are "original", but I already cracked one and see advantages to full, wrap around gaurds for riding and falling.
    I was thinking Acerbis Rally Gaurds, or Maier Enduro gaurds.....
    I know the folks here most have an opinion.Thanks.

    I have the Acerbis Rally Pro ones on my DRZ, I like them. They have an aluminum bar running through them. You can get optional additional plastic spoilers to add more wind/weather protection. Some guys like the Maier ones, but most I've talked to prefer the Cycra Probends http://www.cycra.com
    Handguards rock! Protect your hands AND levers. To me the plastic ones that don't wrap around are pretty worthless, except for weather protection.

    My DRZ has Acerbis RallyPros and my wife's bike has Cycra ProBends. Both are bulletproof, but the Cycras are about $20-30 more. Either one would work fine.
